Marion + Heinz
Highclere Castle Wedding Photography, Berkshire
My next wedding found me in the outstanding surroundings of Highclere Castle, the setting for the popular ITV period drama series Downton Abbey.
Marion and Heinz had planned their wedding from their home in San Francisco, California (with a little help from Marion’s family in the UK), and it was a truly international affair. Heinz and his family are from Switzerland, and Marion’s mum and her family are Jamaican.
After a brief snag when the father of the bride managed to lock his keys in his car (along with his suit) prompting an emergency drive home by Marion’s brother, we headed to the ceremony at the nearby Church of the Ascension in Burghclere. We had musical performances by family members and parts of the ceremony were conducted by Marion’s uncle who is a vicar in Jamaica.
Back at Highclere, great effort had been put into the details with escort cards, table names and place cards all featuring drawings of various international locations close to the couple’s hearts. And the family involvement continued with a number of very thorough speeches with slideshows. And not a wartime outfit in sight!

The Olde Bell in Hurley is becoming a regular haunt for me, and I'm back again later in the year. It's pretty dark in the barn, so a bit of a challenge even in the middle of summer, but the rain was infrequent and light enough to allow plenty of outside time. Another...
With two kids of their own, Anna and John were keen to have a child-friendly wedding, and that's exactly what they got. Good job too, with more than 30 children in attendance! After their ceremony in the Tithe Barn at The Olde Bell, everyone was guided across the road...
